Who's hype as fuck?
Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody
b-but it's the manga a-and ln.
Tried to read this shit.
Focus on "tried".
It was boring as hell, and cliché as fuck. Can't believe I endured almost 7 volumes before giving up. Never again.
Cliche though it may be, it's not poorly done like this seasons Hundred (I only watch the first episode, sorry if it did a 540 to make a comeback).
Aw shit. Death March getting localized? Yen Press aside I'm gladd. Been reading this for a while.
Can't wait to read about the Loli Food God on his sight-seeing tour around a Magical World.
That said, feels weird that YP would pick this up.
Wait, is it getting an anime soon? Or do they actually think it'll do well in the west?
This. For me this was even worse than Re:Monster, because, differently from Re:M, I actually got expectations out of Death March.
And then, they were utterly trampled once I realized what kind of story Death March really was. "Story". Heh.
I dunno about this of all things getting an anime. It's too long, and I feel a anime would just butcher it to boost LN sales.
Their new partnership is probably responsible for that since it's highly popular in Japan.
Goblin Slayer - which is fairly new - was picked up as well, but I've no clue about its popularity.
I feel a anime would just butcher it to boost LN sales.
What are Light Novel Anime adaptations?
Yeah, I sort of forgot about that. Kadokawa will probably push out more series with less care about whether or not there's a big enough niche in the US. Actually, they might just be trying to see what works and what doesn't, while also building interest in Light Novels.
I'm happy and all about the license of this since I always wanted to read the LN version of it.
But, I think it's about time they stopped licensing these trapped/transported/reincarnated in a game/other world setting novels and focus on something else again.
But it sells. Haven't you learned from SAO?
Try reading the LN, now that it's getting translated. Just give it a try, usually the LNs are way better than their WN counterparts.
stopped licensing these trapped/transported/reincarnated in a game/other world setting novels
Eh, they haven't licensed THAT many compared to others, have they?
Their bigger names happen to be of that kind, but that really can't be helped. What's popular is popular, and what's popular is power fantasies.
For those who want to see how the Light Novel is:
The first two volumes have already been translated.
(Note: Double translation from Japanese -> Chinese -> English)
The series is fine though.
In my opinion, I think the WN does it better (except for the dog-kin children party that was added to the LN, that was cute).
Also just use novel updates links
There are still a lot of them, though.
NGNL, SAO, Re:Zero, Overlord, KonoSuba, Log Horizon, Death March. No clue if I forgot some.
Nearly half of these were recent licenses.
I could mention DanMachi as well since it's extremely similar and the only difference is simply the absence from the reincarnation/transportation part. But I won't do so since it doesn't fit the criteria completely. Well, I did mention it in the end, though.
May as well include Accel World.
fucking transported/reincarnation fantasy shit.
Where's my mecha LNs?
Can that also follow game logic?
You can have Knights and Magic.
Pretty much all of the 90s was mecha, not LNs, but it pretty much kill everything else mainstream in otaku culture.
They'll come back on a few years, but we're in the harem/fantasy transition stage.
I only hope that it doesn't kill the online translations like with Konosuba, importing this to Europe would be a bother and too costly for me.
Karina is best girl.
No. Only angst and war drama
But that's boring
Agreed. She really has me sold on the whole desuwa thing. I wonder if he will marry her with the elf and nun.
Oh, and please don't spoil. Still reading.
It probably won't affect Sousetsuka's translation since he's doing the WN, but the LN translation is pretty much already dead anyway so...
But that's boring
implying fantasy shit is not
We have enough angst and war drama.
No it's not.
I'm not going as far as saying it's worse than Re:Monster, like that other user did, but for me it's way worse than the second half of Tate no Yuusha.
And I absolutely abhorred that second half, apart from a few good characters (like best girl Atlas, her brother, Kiel, the whale girl, the mole girl, the mad scientist, etc...)
It is amusing how the Nun is almost as thirsty as Arisa and Nana.
there are people who hate the story about a gourmet tour in a fantasy world
What the hell is wrong with you?
you will never travel the world with an entourage of cute lolis.
I like her ~desuwa thing and her annoying kohai (as satou put it) personality, but it just throws me off how her tits always look like they're repelling each other.
reality is boring
Never said that I hated it, just that it was utterly boring and overly-cliched.
It takes them 1year to translate what a independent translator can do in a few months
Fantasy RPG setting
I want this meme to end.
Recreating Moden Junkfood counts as gourmet?
The author is such a lazy ass that he can't be half assed to come up with fantasy food.
Everyone just dicksucks MC for recreating tempera instead.
Except MC is anti-lolicon.
Wait, YP picking up a series that hasn't been translated online yet? I might actually buy this one.
But I'm not.
Wait, YP picking up a series that hasn't been translated online yet?
It's not exactly the first time, but what's most surprising is that Goblin Slayer only released in Japan this year. It's pretty much the most out-of-nowhere license they've had, I think.
Aw yes. Liza is hot.
I mean how most of the stories they've picked up in the past already had fan translations.
Unless you mean something else.
Have you not read the series? She's super fucking thirsty.
Nana is only thirsty for young organisms, she hardly cared about Satou.
Japan in charge of subtlety.
I thought it was established that Satou is just horrible with names?
Satou intentionally has terrible naming sense. If I recall, Pochi and Tama are also common dog and cat names in Japan, I think.
I really don't understand this kind of people, it is quite obvious what kind of story this was going to be, the MC even tells you directly, I don't know what kind of expectations people had but once the MC leaves his first city you should understand what kind of story this is, if you expect something else you're an idiot.
It's definitely the most surprising one like some user already said.
And it's not only that it has no translation, it doesn't even have a manga (well, it's starting in a few days in Japan).
That guy looks like a Dark Souls character
satou rejects her and tell her he love the high elf
So fucking good, more MC should be like that
High elf a shit.
She's cute. But it kind of surprised me that Satou just kind of says he wants to marry her all of a sudden.
I wonder how much longer until the dragon god will finally appear in cute girl mode. The WN already has 450 chapter, we have to reach the endgame soon.
You a shit, she's best girl
Satou wipes out the whole dragon race just stepping into the world
Everyone says it's fine.
Sou is tl'ing the WN right?
They grow back, is fine, is fine.
What kills me is I'm about 100+ chapters in and nobody has noticed the dragons are gone or at least gone to check on them.
This shit gets an anime? Really?
Jesus christ it was so bad. Welp I am completely overpowered and have a harem let's not fuck them and also I am not greedy and am going to use my powers for good things because muh japanese norms.
As far as anyone is concerned the dragon god will revive and just create a bunch of new dragons.
Remember that dragon Vally has a barrier around it.
I think the important point is that there are massive craters all around the continent the dragons lived on and for some reason nobody is worried.
dragon valley that not even the best knights in the world can walk 30 minutes without being mangled
if you can make it near enough the dragon God may mistake you for a toothpick
I wonder why
Why be hype for anything in English?
It's either official releases that are late as fuck, or absolutely crappy machine translations from Chinese machine translations, that some schmuck edited a bit and acts like it's a gift to humanity.
Yay for disposable quick-cast spells!
The TL for this is actually pretty good.
Nana=Pochi >> Parion > *
How long until this and Shieldbro gets an anime?
Sousetsuka's almost definitely going to get a take down notice. Yen Press doesn't care whether its the LN or WN version. Plus he has LN pictures up with the corresponding WN chapters.
He's a bro, I hope he doesn't bend over like sky did.
He's also just 60 or so chapters behind.
Death March isn't the full title?
Right? I much prefer Desu Machi
I might get this, solely for Pochi and Tama.
How does anons like the daughter of the duke LN? The one that became social reformation the novel?
Which translated LNs are worth reading anons?
Iris is best girl.
I swear she got a MBA at least before she died in the human world.
All that competence is just so sexy. I guess the first prince is Ok.
These are ok
The nekomimi priest girl on the 1st row, mind sharing the English name so we can find the translations?
She is like a cute little Chihuahua.
Not him, but I think that's Tokyo Ravens. It had an anime a while back
Oh, that is the adult fox spirit? Almost did not recognize her there.
What about the cute tomboy in jeans in the 3rd row?
You see all these here beautiful girls?
Well only a couple of 'em er human,
Risou no himo, the translation is at V4 while she doesn't appears until V6.
Risou no himo
Aye! It's the brown girl story! I really wish it'd get an update soon.
What do anons use to keep track of VN translations? Is there a program for this? Or an app?
Is that the one with the cake queen lusting after the MC?
Well... yea... It's a good story though. And he lusts for her while she used him as a stud for a while. Then they're a happy couple.
I don't do VNs but I use and rss feed reader plugin to keep track of my LNs and WNs if that's what you meant.
My bad, yes, I meant LNs. Thanks!
Aho-updates, novelupdates, /r/ noveltranslations
He took down the LN illustrations already.
Post your face when Kumo Desu ga Nani Ka gets licensed by Yen Press at the same time the author gets off hiatus.
Why, why did the 10 year NEET story have to add in a young cousin girl that has a crush on MC to get transported with him.
For the record I'm talking about
That story. The LN decided to add in a Japanese high school cousin girl for MC to get transported to other world with. From the LN images she seems to have a crush on MC too. I guess the editors thought the story required a non dog or loli heroine.
You can't truly be a japanese winner unless you fuck your cousin.
But the point of the story is that the MC is as far from being a winner as could be. He's closer to being the side character in his own story with his dog being the main character.
A literal dog?
He's obviously a self insert beta MC. By the end he'll have a harem. Guaranteed
In the WN he doesn't. It's just him adopting a young girl he found in the forest as his little sister. Which is why I said apparently that's not good enough for a LN version.
Yes his female dog Koutarou is the courageous hero while the MC is a horrible coward. The dog was the one that killed the goblins that first showed up.
yeah, they ruined this one. I like when the MC always get sidelined
another new world Gary Stu no personality self insert MMORPG bullshit LN
fuck this gay earth
There are a LOT more than that
Satou can't be a self insert. He get's laid.
Satou can't be a self insert. He get's laid.
his bitch is the real MC
Actually the MMORPG is a special magic of his, the rest of the plebians use the good ol magic system
That's not really true. His menu and inventory and stuff is his alone true and how it lets him cheat instant cast magic and things but levels and skills and all that are part of the world.
Someone help me with all the titles please.
I only know death march, konosuba, shoukan shoujo from all these.
Everything wrong with lightnovels: The image
Menu and storage are Satuo only, Arisa only has a quasi menu and Shin [fake king of magic] used actual magic to see his titles
Saitou does have a normal personality though.
As said, almost everyone don't know about the skills and stuff.
Yes they do? Skills and titles appear when examined by the Yamato stones.
Sure they're powered by the leylines but that doesn't change the fact that people are aware of the skills and stuff they have since appraisal from the yamato stones isn't exactly totally uncommon.
